As I mentioned in my post yesterday, The Moderation Nation Web site Moderation Nation provides a host of tools including:
- Recipes and Expert Tips. Here you´ll find advice from Cheryl Forberg, registered dietitian (RD) for NBC's The Biggest Loser, award-winning chef and New York Times best-selling cookbook author. Additional recipes and tips from Regina Ragone, Food Director at Family Circle magazine; Keri Glassman, author of the O2 diet; and Liz Ward, author of Expect the Best Pregnancy.
- Moderation Menus. Seven-day meal plans - with snack ideas - that will help you plan out your week. Each menu is based on an individual lifestyle, such as Single, Adults with Kids and Adults with No Kids.
- Balance the Meal. This cool balancer tool allows you to input your main dish and its preparation method; in return, you´ll receive ideas for complementary side dishes that round out the meal smartly.
- Useful Facts. Here you´ll find everything from a "portion distortion" guide - providing cues on what actual portion sizes should look like - to a grocery shopping fact sheet - to a guide on how to start and maintain a food journal.
No concrete plans for the weekend. I want to go to Zumba tomorrow at 10:00 a.m and I would really like to start painting the watermelon bowls. My supplies are in Danielle's garage so I need to get them out. Since we have a lot of storage at the new place, I can bring them to our place and store them now. Well, I hope you all have a good weekend. Until next time...
